Re: USB Hub

I might give this similar one a try. I found it recommended on the rpi forums and i can see someone commenting on amazon confirming that it works. https://www.amazon.co.uk/niceeshop-Multi-fonction-Charge-Adapter-Connector-Black/dp/B00OK44HNI?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_det...

Re: Any other Custom Circuits/PCBs you guys need

Ideally there would be two boards just like in the stock GB: one attached to the front that handles buttons and one attached to the back that has the power switch, volume pot, external connector (replaced with USB), cartridge socket, and aligns the Pi Zero so that the contrast knob opening is now fo...

Re: Potentiometer for volume adjustment?

@Cannikin Sadly I didn't.. so I need a 10K pot? I don't think it has to be 10K, you'll just have to test and see which ones have a good volume "feel"...I would think if you pick one with a higher resistance then you won't be using the full range of the knob to change the volume from max loudness to...

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

Can anybody help me? Don't have an idea how to connect this model to the RP0 :? See here: http://www.modmypi.com/blog/how-to-add-an-rca-tv-connector-to-a-raspberry-pi-zero You don't even need the connectors they show if you just solder wires directly to the pins on the Pi and the controller board f...

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

if you had to change the settings for every emulator to make the screen fit, as i had to with my cheap 320x240 screen? I settled on: disable_overscan=1 overscan_top=8 overscan_bottom=8 overscan_left=0 overscan_right=0 (left and right don't seem to matter once you set top and bottom). I started with...

Yep, runs on 5V. I was able to power it right from the Pi 2 USB output even. I hooked it up to my variable power supply and it shows about 310mA power draw.

Re: Potentiometer for volume adjustment?

Did you keep the original GB volume knob? That's a 10k and it has two channels already.

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

Took a couple photos of the display board. It's the same size as the screen and fits EXACTLY (width-wise) inside the GB...almost like it was made for it. The back is labeled very nicely and I followed the traces on the little remote switch board and none of the switches are hooked up to those power ...

Re: Removing components off original DMG boards

I had mine at 350° and nothing was happening so I upped it to 400° and then the existing solder melted real nice. I finally buckled down and got myself a nice soldering iron a couple of years ago and I'm SO glad I did. I've got this one, which has since been retired, but I think it's just a re-brand...
